Welcome to the Glove Dippers.

We are a small club of dedicated swimmers, triathletes and sport enthusiasts who swim at a private lake at Glove Factory Studios in Holt, Wiltshire.

The Lake

The Lake is situated in the grounds of Glove Factory Studios and is open to members only. The water quality is excellent and tested regularly.

The Lake boasts a 100m length and is perhaps the only place in the UK where you can swim, watch the sun go down and listen to sheep and donkeys chatting in the near by fields.

The Lake has fantastic facilities with access (during open hours) to toilets, showers and the Field Kitchen.
